About Alexandria Blaelock

Alexandria Blaelock writes stories, some of them for Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine and Pulphouse Fiction Magazine. She’s also written five self-help books applying business techniques to personal matters like getting dressed, cleaning house, and feeding your friends.

She lives in a forest because she enjoys birdsong, the scent of gum leaves and the sun on her face. When not telecommuting to parallel universes from her Melbourne based imagination, she watches K-dramas, talks to animals, and drinks Campari.

At the same time.

Five Fun Facts About Alexandria Blaelock

  1. When she was about eight years old, Alexandria spent a lovely sunny afternoon in an apricot tree eating sun-warmed fruit straight from the branch. And was very ill the next day. Hasn’t eaten them since. Can’t stand the smell of them.
  2. She took a cruise on the original Love Boat (Sun Princess), but decades after the show finished and she was Festival Cruises Flamenco.
  3. Alexandria sang First Tenor in her secondary school’s Choir and Barber Shop Quartet.
  4. She is a dog magnet. Wherever she goes, dogs come to check her out. Stray dogs have approached her in London, San Francisco, Geneva, Pompeii, Rotorua and across Australia (amongst others).
  5. Her hair started going white in her early teens; she had Lily Munster streaks and thought she looked cool.

The Small Print


As a kidney transplant recipient, I will from time to time comment on medical topics, procedures and treatments.

Please note that I am not qualified to provide medical advice, and you must review any medical information I provide with your medical team, taking your particular circumstances into account.

This information, and my comments, represent the opinions I have formed based on the information available to me in my jurisdiction, and might not apply to you in your place of residence.


The only goods I sell on this site are my own. If you click to another store, (e.g., amazon) through one of my universal book links, I may receive a small percentage of your overall sale (though this does not affect the price you pay).

Another Disclosure

For the sake of my friends’ and family’s privacy, I refer to all:

  • Women as Katy in memory of the What Katy Did books by Susan Coolidge – I loved her as a child and I thought she would make an excellent best friend.
  • Men as Toseland, from The Children of Green Knowe by LM Boston. I adored this series as a child and still have the full set I reread periodically.
